Our services are tailored to your unique needs and you’ll have a main point of contact to guide you through each step of the way. You can rest assured that your loved ones are in safe hands with the Coole Bevis LLP team.


Knowing that your wishes will carried out and your best interests cared for is a comfort for many. Our deputyship team will have you in safe hands, should you become mentally incapacitated without support from suitable family members.

Powers of Attorney

Entrusting your financial affairs to someone else is no light decision, so making sure you’ve found the right people to make your wishes known is paramount. Our team can prepare and register the lasting powers of attorney that you choose, or act on their behalf where required.

Care Fee Funding - Advice and Planning

Planning for the long-term is just as important in later life. We work closely with independent financial consultants to make sure your care fee funding is the last of your worries.

Estate and Wealth Planning

Making post-death arrangements is, understandably, an emotional and often fraught experience. The sensitive and professional Coole Bevis LLP team will hold your hand through the process, offering you expert advice tailored to you.

Inheritance Act Claims and Disputes

Making inheritance claims or taking your rights to court can be expensive, time-consuming and upsetting. Our litigation team will help you to understand your rights and walk you through the process of going to court or opting for mediation.

Trust and Trust Administration

There are many different types of trusts and it can be overwhelming trying to make sense of them all. We’ll offer you tailored, impartial advice, helping you to choose the right option for you and your loved ones.

Probate and Estate Administration

Administering an estate is a big responsibility and a time-consuming process. During an emotional time, this can be difficult to manage alone. By utilising our expertise, we’ll deal with all the administration and negotiation, taking some weight off your shoulders.

Wills, Will Drafting and Succession

Will writing is a very personal process and one that’s important to get right. Our service is tailored to your needs and we’ll offer you the advice you need to make sense of everything. We’ll also be right here to make any changes or to help you review your will.
